Sargent Place By Spain
Sargent Place is one of the their most powerful efforts to date, an expression of caring born from a time of grief. [Read More...]
Underrated 2014: Spain's 'Sargent Place'
Listen to the barbed and menacing "From the Dust" and watch as an as-yet-unfilmed David Lynch movie comes into focus around you. [Read More...]
Spain - Sargent Place / The Morning Becomes Eclectic Session
De eerste platen van Spain koester ik stuk voor stuk. Sargent Place voegt weer wat toe aan deze platen en wordt daarom door mij minstens net zo liefdevol omarmd. Het is iets dat zeker navolging verdient. [Read More...]
Spain - Sargent Place Review
While their sound is distinctive, on Sargent Place Spain take a bold step in a different direction, informed by both Haden’s jazz-musician dad Charlie and Black Keys producer Gus Seyffert, who takes away any reservedness. [Read More...]

SPAIN “SARGENT PLACE” - Review
With this record the comeback starts to make sense - there’s been a shift, nothing dramatic, in truth nothing much has changed, but you know how different a face can look with a different haircut even though it is the same face, Spain have had a haircut. [Read More...]
SPAIN - Sargent Place / Review
Die zehn Songs bringen die Ruhe zurück in unsere Welt, welche so schnell und unübersichtlich geworden ist. [Read More...]
SPAIN - SARGENT PLACE / Review
Spain é um pequeno milagre no meio da cansada música alternativa. Sargent Place é bem feito, bem composto, bem tocado e com muita classe. Se você gosta desta forma ébria e nada fofa de autocomiseração, caia dentro. [Read More...]
Spain, 'Sargent place' / Review
Tegelijkertijd is dit de meest verscheidene Spain-release tot op heden. Wij hoorden er bij vlagen ook de kamermuziek van Leonard Cohen of de tijdloze JJ Cale in. Pluimen die Josh Haden waarschijnlijk maar wat graag op zijn hoed zal steken. [Read More...]
Spain - Sargent Place / Review
Sargent Place è un coacervo di suoni ben distinti, di chitarre mai invadenti, di basso propulsivo, ma di una spinta quasi silenziosa, antigravitazionale. Non è un disco triste, ma un assaggio di primavera che mette fuoco ai pensieri, alle riflessioni sfruttando idee ben chiare nella testa di Josh, ospiti d’onore, ottimi musicisti e soprattutto la famiglia. [Read More...]
Le blues de Spain
Spain, le projet de Josh Haden (fils du jazzman Charlie Haden), draine un certain nombre d’aficionados envoûtés par sa musique lente et voluptueuse, sorte de soul-blues au ralenti. [Read More...]
Spain nutzen den Schwung des Comebacks
Nur drei Alben in 17 Karriere-Jahren bis 2012 - und seitdem drei weitere: Irgendetwas muss mit Spain-Frontmann Josh Haden passiert sein, das seine Songwriter-Musen dermaßen auf Trab gebracht hat.

CD Review / Spain - Sargent Place
"Sargent Place" hat einen hohen Unterhaltungswert. Die Band versteht es, dem Genre auf besondere Art und Weise Facetten zu geben, die einfach magnetische Wirkung auf den Hörer haben. [Read More...]
SPAIN "THE MORNING BECOMES ECLECTIC SESSION"
"...the jolt of live performance reminds me how good a band Spain really are." [Read More...]
The Morning Becomes Eclectic Session
Sept titres d’une rare sobriété, mais qui remplissent l’espace et fendent nos cœurs sans se sentir obligés d’en faire des tonnes. Pas de pathos forcé ou de sentimentalisme exacerbé ici: on est dans une émotion brute qui ne peut être compensée que par un songwriting d’une infime délicatesse. [Read More...]
Spain: the morning becomes eclectic session
Kortom: The Morning Becomes Eclectic is een must voor de fans en een aanwinst op het toch al indrukwekkende ouvre van deze nog altijd ondergewaardeerde band. [Read More...]
SPAIN – THE MORNING BECOMES ECLECTIC SESSIONS
De band was in grootse vorm en speelde de songs met volle overtuiging en emotie. Niet alleen de sterke songs maar zeker de sfeervolle zang van Haden maken hier het absolute verschil. De extra bijdragen van Josh’ zussen in songs als (The) Only One en vooral Spiritual zijn een zeer rijke aanvulling. Niet alleen de gloedvolle vocalen in die songs maar zeker ook de viool van Petra en de cello van Tanya maken een song als Walked On The Water nog veel mooier dan het origineel. The Morning Becomes Eclectic Sessions is daarmee een mooie aanwinst op het rijke oeuvre van de band. [Read More...]

Spain, The Soul of Spain (2012)
I liked Spain already – one day I’ll find The Blues Moods of Spain on vinyl and it will be mine; oh yes, it will be mine – but last year’s The Soul of Spain took me by surprise/bowled me over (albeit it in its own slow-burn kinda way). I guess I just didn’t expect it to necessarily be brilliant, but rather nice. Turns out it was (and is) both. [Read More...]
#1 - Ampedmag's Top 50 Albums Of 2012
This album is an utter joy from beginning to end. Relaxed, mellow, oozing with class and completely flawless, it’s rare for any album in the modern age to be so obviously made to listen to in one whole sitting. [Read More...]
Disque Du Jour 04 Jan 2013
Les textes s'allient aux sensations musicales et aux textures rendues par cette voix unique qui explore, non sans un certain mysticisme, l'amour, la liberté et la foi. [Read More...]
Spain - The Soul Of Spain
Sans atteindre les sommets de spleen de “The Blue Moods of Spain”, ce quatrième album de Josh Haden & co possède suffisamment d’atouts dans sa manche pour qu’on revienne faire un tour du côté de chez Spain. [Read More...]
Kevin Bryan's Record Reviews
[The band delivers] a downbeat yet oddly compelling collection occupying a curious musical niche midway between lounge jazz and the likes of Spiritualized at their most glacial. [Read More...]
Past Perfect: Spain
Spain released three albums between 1995 and 2001 before going into dry dock. Now, on the occasion of those three records getting their first release on vinyl, it’s time to take a look back at the under-appreciated Spain. [Read More...]
